    Re: Submit An Idiom

    Uhmm... what do you mean "Green Mile"?

    In case you're asking me whether or not this was my idiom, no, it wasn't.

    Re: Submit An Idiom

    Hi there!

    Thank you for your comments. I have, as a result, created a new page that should go some way to answering your questions: Help & Terms of Use

    It is very much a work in progress, so if you have any suggestions of points for which we could provide answers (I'd like the page to be an FAQ) I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

    Will you PM to tell me if my idiom was accepted? If it's refused, will you tell me why so that I can't make whatever changes are necessary?

    Thanks.

    EDIT: One more thing, I've noticed there's no examples proposed with the idioms.

    I would personally suggest providing an example fr every single idiom as the usefulness is more limited without examples in context.

    Just something to think about.

    EDIT 2: I've sent my idiom, but I'm not sure whether or not it got through. I had no confirmation whatsoever...

    Another attempt

    I've sent my idiom for the second time. I got through to the "thank you" screen so it should be fine now.

    Hello,friend,

    Actually my English is not good.I always made mistake when I speak English,the Grammar is poor---because I only studied grammer in the middle school...My pronounce is not good...Yeah,I try to learn and I try to change..

    I really like English,but I hate remember English words and I hate read English books,I only like speak English and I like talking...so much.

    So,I decided go to school and I spend money to study English...But,that's not easy...I have no money,I am poor..

    So I don't know how to do
    Friends'
